Wow, that's so interesting, because for me I really believe that the baby and all the other parts are growing at their own rate.
started out 5'5" 128#, now 25 weeks, first trimester gained (almost on the button) 0.5 lb/wk, 2nd trimester gaining 1lb/wk, although my weight can fluctuate several pounds within a day.
First trimester ate mostly greasy foods
, lots of olive oil, cheeses, whole milk dairy products because that's just what I felt like eating.
Second trimester haven't liked grease on the tongue. Also exercising really regularly.
: I'm just hoping that after the pregnancy, my regular metabolism returns.
